Here's four interesting items from the international front:
Orange Business has landed a partnership with PSA Peugeot for fleet telematics. Basically, Peugeot will be using their network services as part of a solution that tracks the way a fleet of automobiles are used - location, speed, fuel consumption, etc. The so-called 'internet of things' is clearly already here in many ways.
Vodafone Global Enterprise has announced a 7 year multi-million pound contract with RWE over in the UK. They've become the utility company's total communications partner there, providing network voice and data starting as of yesterday. This probably derives from the C&W Worldwide assets of course, which Vodafone bought two years ago now (time sure does fly).
GTT has landed another multnational EtherCloud customer. Phillips, the auction house and not the electronics giant, is using their network to provide reliable connectivity for its global auctions. And GTT also looks like it plans to be aggressive on the M&A front this year, as it filed a fat $200M shelf registration with the FCC yesterday.
CoreOne Technologies is expanding in the Asia-Pacific region with a little help from Equinix. The financial information provider has moved into Equinix's SG2 facility in Singapore. They were already working with Equinix in London, New York and Chicago, so it's not a big stretch except for the raw distance.
